Gamers offered six-speaker 5.1 headset

Stereo? Pah!

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

We always thought headphones only had two speakers on board, one for each ear, but accessory maker Terratec this week laughed at the conventional configuration with a pair of cans that contains six cones, three for each ear, to deliver "true 5.1 surround sound". It's also got a mic.

The Headset Master 5.1 USB connects, as it's name suggests, to a spare USB port. Between computer and cans sits a a dongle that does the sound processing and allows you to control the directionality of the sound you hear, change the volume, boost or reduce the sub-woofer bass.

Aimed at gamers, the Headset Master 5.1 USB provides a "snug fit", Terratec claimed, that "guarantees perfect comfort" even after many a long hour spent in multi-player combat. But the set's equally at home with DVD playback, the company said.

Available now, the Headset Master 5.1 USB retails for around £45. ®
